As the job market heats up, competition for top talent is increasing. Focusing on the consumer products sector (outdoor, active performance, natural products, natural foods – wholesale, retail and ecommerce), we analyzed responses from 36 high level decision makers to understand their priorities and challenges related to acquiring the best talent.
The survey results highlight five key trends:1-The overall trend for hiring in 2015
2-The biggest challenges to making great hires
3-The best sources for top talent
4-The toughest jobs to fill in consumer products
5-Employer brand perception
The results of the survey are benchmarked against the recent 2015 US Recruiting Trends Survey released by LinkedIn, showing similarities and differences in consumer products company trends against the broader pool of US employers.
